ALD/ALE Process in Commercially Available Logic Devices 2018 saw the introduction of a new generation of logic products featuring finFET transistors headlined by Intel with their 10 nm generation microprocessor, followed by TSMC and Samsung towards the end of the year with their 7 nm node devices
Contributed by: Arabinda Das Today the semiconductor industry is a behemoth whose annual sales revenue crosses US $400 Billion. Over its 60 years of existence, this mature industry has experimented with various models like integrated device manufacturer (IDM), fabless, and foundry concepts, each of
Posted: July 09, 2020 Contributed by: Sinjin Dixon-Warren, PhD Electric vehicles (EV) are potentially a disruptive technology in the automotive market. They offer the promise of increased energy efficiency and the potential for reduced emissions, depending on the primary energy source used to
Wednesday June 24, 2020 / 2:00 p.m. ET Hosted By: Chi Lim Tan 3D NAND, or vertical NAND, with its higher density and lower cost per bit, has been a driving force in the popularity of solid state drives (SSD) thanks to the innovation and continued investment from both manufacturers and suppliers. 9x
Some say that in the H2 2017 – H1 2018 timeframe Intel’s 10nm node were so half baked, that Intel had to significantly redesign its 10 nm process technology for subsequent products. In any case, one SKU and limited availability speak for themselves.
Quand on dit ce mois-ci, c’est à l’occasion de la Conférence des développeurs qui se tiendra dans la semaine du 22 juin, un événement très important appelé WWDC ou Worldwide Developers Conference qui se tient en Californie, à San José ou à San Francisco selon les années.
Posted: June 05, 2020 Contributed by: Sinjin Dixon-Warren, PhD The power electronics industry is in a period of transition. For many years silicon-based devices have dominated the industry, with conventional Si MOSFET transistors being used for lower power and intermediate frequency, with super
Like many other businesses, the Japanese heavyweight is under significant financial pressure thanks to the covid-19 pandemic, but its long track record of leveraging its IP assets could prove a saving grace

With waveform and protocol testing essential to investigating memory technology patents for evidence of use, TechInsights’ Martin Bijman and Neil MacLeod take a closer look at the portfolios of the top NAND patent owners to determine how different types of analysis can support different types of
A look inside YMTC’s second-generation 3D-NAND technology, which uses “Xtacking” to bond the peripheral circuitry face-to-face with the memory array instead of alongside. As first published in Semiconductor Digest.
Contributed Author: Sinjin Dixon-Warren The market for Silicon Carbide (SiC) power transistors is expected to grow considerably over the coming years. SiC power transistors have several advantages over traditional silicon-based devices, including improved performance in high-temperature, high
